Normally a right of access would be stated in the title deeds to the properties concerned. however, even if it isn't, you can claim a prescriptive right of access if it has been used without interruption for more than 20 years. evidence of the continued use would be needed. i presume that won't be a difficulty. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time. Happy to discuss any specific point further.
